Credentialing with Anthem
Credentialing is the process Anthem uses to evaluate and select licensed independent practitioners to provide care to our members:
Anthem uses CAQH (Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare) ProView™ to collect and verify healthcare professionals’ qualifications, including certification, training, licensure and registration to practice.
This secure and private portal reduces the amount of paperwork you need to fill out to complete the credentialing process.
If you have a CAQH user ID, please make sure to give Anthem authorization to view your CAQH credentialing information. For help with this, you can contact CAQH online or call CAQH at 1-888-599-1771.
Who do we credential?
We credential licensed healthcare professionals with whom the company intends to contract and market to our members. Our Program Summary includes a complete list of provider types we credential and those we do not.
Please note: Facilities (Health Delivery Organizations) may also need to be credentialed before joining the network.
